Christmas gift shopping has changed so much over the years, for most of us the days of meandering around the shops looking for the perfect gift for everyone has long gone and instead been replaced by a rudimentary Google search and an eye watering postage charge for expedited delivery. Sometimes the most difficult part is finding a bit of gift inspiration, especially for those who seemingly have it all, so we’ve put together our Christmas Gift Guide to give you a few ideas.

The Gift of time from Olivia Burton

This British accessory brand was founded by best friends and ex-fashion buyers Jemma and Lesa, who met on their first day at The London College of Fashion.

They made the leap and set about creating their own beautiful and unique watches. Olivia Burton is the perfect gift for your loved ones this festive season. Choose from a beautiful collection of watches and jewellery at a special discount.
